    Our server "Edison" was exceptional. Explained menu, accomdated our vegan, got us everythig we needed, smiled, and professional. Drinks were very nice. Burratta salad was very good. Pistachio Tartufo was very good and sharable! The surf and turf was a bit dissapointing. Lobster tail was fine and cooked just right. Decent quality lobster. The steak was med-rare and tough (that was the dissappointing part). Meat could have been a better quality , just wasnt worth paying so much more than all the other dinners. Loved the atmosphee, all else was good, so will definitly give it a second try.

    The menu is far more extensive online than it is when you get there. One waiter yelled at us during our time there when we simply asked him to move our outdoor heater closer towards us.

    A great setting on the marina. The patio area was amazing. Overall, the food was pretty good and the cocktails are unique. Seafood was pretty fresh and well presented. The staff was great and constantly making sure we were good. I definitely recommend the Cove for an everyday meal or special occasion. Cant wait to go back!!

    I came to the Cove because it was a hot day and I thought it would be cool by the water and I remembered the food was good as well as the ambience. What I had forgotten was just how HORRIBLE the service was!!! This was a first date so from a scenic standpoint the vibe was perfect. The first problem was when we ordered oysters. The three choices were west coast, east coast and blue point. We chose east coast and the server said “so blue point” to which I replied “no, east coast” but since he said the blue point was his favorite we went with his recommendation. I asked for tobasco and he said “it comes with it. It did not and it took us 10 minutes to get tobasco. There was one waiter for about 40 tables and a girl who, although very nice, did not speak English. So I had to get out my phone to translate tobasco and also ask for hose radish. When we wanted to order a second glass of wine we had to wait 20 minutes for someone to come to our table. The waiter didn’t want to be bothered with us. We finally got the girls attention and asked for a dessert menu. She brought over the regular menu. FINALLY the waiter showed his face and read us verbally the dessert choices. Around 10:30-11:00, a young, and definitely less upscale crowd began rolling in which had no effect on me whatsoever but definitely noticeable. The food, great. The wine, mediocre. The scenery and vibe, excellent. The service, zero stars.

    Great food, though the price reflects the waterfront scenery. Service was atrociously bad. Our server was just stretched too thin to give us any attention. Nice guy and not his fault, but I would not come back here on a busy night.

    I took my mother here for Mother's Day for the first time ever and was very happy with our experience. We sat outside where they had heaters on a nice but cloudy day. The service was fairly attentive, atmosphere was lovely, and most importantly, the food was delicious. I would definitely come back.
